Peony Perfection!

This summer I had the pleasure of working on these lovely blue and white peony invitations.  I was able to once again incorporate modern calligraphy in the graphic design.  The fonts that I normally use just don’t make the cut anymore! There is something so beautiful and unique about these hand lettered names! It’s almost impossible to achieve the same look because this font is not something you can download 🙂


Bridal Shower Invites


Cute and fun to do, these invites are the perfect way to get your guests excited for an upcoming event!

At the size 5.5 x 4.25″ they are smaller than the 5 x 7″ cards I often do, but are perfect for a shower, birthday party, or any other kind of party for that matter!  😛

Soft and Fresh with Mint


Front view.

This past summer the studio has worked on a couple invitations.  It is always great to meet new people especially who are in the midst of planning for a such a special day.  I love giving ideas and coming to the drawing board with a basic idea the couple has in mind and then watching it take shape.  The first wedding I worked on is in mint and gold and I love these colours together.  There is something very fresh about this mix.

Church Program. Pamphlet style.

The church programs were done in greys as this is definitely a more cost effective option, and it still looks beautiful 🙂  Thank you to this lovely couple for letting me help out with your special day!


Rich and Regal in Burgandy and Pearl

These invitations were finished back in August, however the wedding is not until December, so I wanted to wait until all guests had received their invitations before I posted.  This set was very detailed but beautiful.  The bride had a preference for pearlized paper, so the card and pocket where created from a specialty pearl card stock and all the designed areas were added on.  This gave their invitations a rich and regal look that the bride was hoping to portray.


Assembly. Ceremony information and couples monogram glued on.

The assembly of this invitation involved a lot of handwork….scoring, folding, spraying adhesive on three pieces to attach to the pearlized paper, assembling the pocket and finally adding the three cards with additional information.  However, as much as it was, I have always loved the assembly of wedding invitations.  It is the final finishing touch of a piece that has been worked on since the beginning conceptual stages…just a quick drawing on a piece of paper!


A glance at the inside. Fully assembled.

The very first piece that I designed for the couple was the monogram.  I wanted to first capture that glimpse of them as a couple.  The bride really liked the idea of having their initials in the old style of illuminated letters (the first letter in a chapter was very detailed and elegant, usually in colour)  I took her concept to the design stages and came up with a monogram that brings together the more masculine “C” and an elegant “E” weaving it’s way around it.


Couples monogram. Masculine “C” with a feminine and elegant “E” weaving around it.

After we had established that this indeed was exactly what the couple had been looking for, it was time to start designing the other pieces of the invitation.  Regal, rich and elegant were words the bride had given me as to the anticipated mood of the couples wedding day.  I think the final product is precisely what they were looking for and I hope you enjoy taking a peak!


Cards for the inside pocket. Includes information on Accommodations, Reception and RSVP.


All stacked up, almost finished!

Although the pearlized paper is hard to see on-line, there are plenty of samples in my studio.  Don’t hesitate to contact me for a free consultation/estimate.  Even if you need advise because you are making your own to save on cost, I can help you out!  Just give me a call or an e-mail.

Thanks from the studio.

Front view of the invitation.

It was very exciting to meet this next couple in our new home and in my new office!  Finally we were back in our own home with much excitement!  After almost a year away, meeting clients anywhere we could, it was a blessing to have our own space back!

The brides vision of the wedding day was rustic, country.  So we used a wheat theme, with the main colour being burgandy.


Front, stacked.

A vintage damask pattern graced the background of this beautiful stationery.  Wheat adorned the front to give the card a country feel.


Inside view. Pocket with three cards.

A beautiful image of the couple (photo credit: adorns the inside of this stationery with the ceremony information off to the right.  The pocket makes things much simpler for guests as it keeps all the information together easily.  Inside the pocket is all the details needed to get your guests to the right places at the right times.


A closer view of the cards from the pocket.


Back of the cards with couples monogram.

Reverse of each card in the pocket had the couple’s monogram and a darker version of the damask pattern in the background.



A monogram decorates the back of each piece and gives an idea of the couples vision for their big day.

It was so great to meet and work with this couple and I wish them God’s blessings as they look forward to their wedding day!

New Invitations in the Works


All assembled, ready for pick-up!

This upcoming wedding is at the end of September.  I look forward to posting more picures of these!


Scoring pearlized cardstock for a current project.

I am currently working on an invitation that will need a bit of handwork.  Scoring the pearlized cardstock, as well as gluing a few items to the pearlized paper.


Gluing invitation onto pearlized stock.

I have my workshop set up in the garage so the amazing Super 77 doesn’t become a super mess!  Once things are set-up, working away at it is fairly quick, and I enjoy every bit even as particular as I am!


Stack of pearlized cardstock!


All set up at the workstation in the garage. Thank you dear hubby for helping me out!


Super 77 gluing station 😛

My very helpful husband cleaned off the rolling workbench he made so I could move it where i needed it and set it up.  I used the top to do all the finicky work and made a small area on the shelf below for spraying on the adhesive.  A small styrofoam tray helped keep the stationery piece off the cardboard so i didn’t have to keep changing the paper underneath that I was spraying on.

I can’t wait to showcase these ones!  Stay tuned for more pictures once this December wedding is closer.
